Biomaster Bag for Life on BBC1

The latest episode of BBC1's consumer programme Rip Off Britain shows how Britain's big name supermarkets can help protect their customers from food poisoning with the Biomaster Bag for Life.

Can you be sure that your bag for life isn’t carrying bugs for life?

Our leading supermarkets have been encouraging us to use a bag for life for many years and millions of shoppers use them every day. When stores have to starting charging customers for plastic bags in October 2015 it is expected that millions more of us will start to use them – but is the eco-friendly bag for life always a good idea?

In the BBC1 programme, Gloria Hunniford, Angela Rippon and Julia Somerville investigate the truth about our bags for life and interview Addmaster founder and Managing Director Paul Morris about the potential risks. 

Paul explains how the Biomaster anti-bacteria bag is treated with technology proven to inhibit the growth of bacteria that might transfer between your bag and your groceries.

Addmaster Marketing Manager Karl Shaw explains: “In the programme, the Rip Off Britain team go on to the high street and tell people about the dangers posed by bags for life. Their reactions are very revealing and show that most people are quite shocked when they know the facts.”
